RSS feed is a system where information of all the websites registered with it, is gathered and shared among its users.
RSS feeds are like a social media feed but instead of users sharing a feed in social media, here all feeds are everything that a website publishes.
With RSS it is possible to distribute up-to-date web content from one web site to thousands of other web sites around the world.
